Scarpa Phantom Tech
The Scarpa Phantom Tech is a super light Boot designed for cold weather mountaineering and ice climbing. The main update to the Phantom Tech is the new waterproof gaiter design, it uses PU Tek technology making it extremely lightweight and durable along with a high level of dexterity. It also reduces the overall weight by 110g making it the lightest boot in its class.
The Scarpa Phantom Tech is mega-versatile in the sense that it’s sensitive and responsive for ice and mixed climbing.
The inner shell has Primaloft 100 insulation layer and integrates Primaloft Silver yarns, which improves the level of warmth and breathability while the watertight zip keeps water and bad weather firmly on the outside.
The sole on the Phantom uses AC Tech roll which gives a good level of cushioning along with a precise feel. It also has a new TPU crampon insert and carbon tech 3 SL midsole creating the perfect harmony with the C3 automatic crampons.

Primaloft is one of the most well-known names in synthetic insulation; it’s warm, compressible, hypoallergenic and retains its warmth even when it’s wet, making it a great insulator in smaller garments like boots and gloves.
H-Dry gives the highest level of waterproofness, breathability and insulation. The waterproof and breathable membrane is firmly laminated to the upper inner side and there are no seams and no gaps where water can penetrate: rain and cold are blocked on the shoe’s outer surface and a large volume of dry air keeps your feet warm and comfortable. The ultra-thin waterproof membrane and the unique lamination method provides a precise fit and keep your shoes dry and light all day.
Technical, precise last shape. Lower volume, slightly narrower than average, with a pointier & tapered toe box shape. Flat lasted for climbing and optimum crampon fit.

The boot is great, very technical and one of the warmest I have ever had on my feet while winter climbing. The only thing I can not pass is that the upper part is very slim. When I zip it fully it slows the blood circulation to my feet partially. So I usually dont zip it to the top.
